A week or so ago, some creature (I'm assuming it was a mouse) got into the parsonage breezeway and proceeded to tear open a bag of bird seed I keep there. The next morning, I found a very messy pile of sunflower seed shells all over the floor. I was busy that day, so I sim...

Some of you know I've been in San Diego attending the U.M. Board of Discipleship's School Of Congregational Development (with a few days of vacation tacked onto the end!). I've enjoyed all the sessions I've attended, especially the opportunity to hear Father Greg Boyle speak - Father G is...

I suppose it's just about time to write my annual lament about how quickly the summer is flying by. It seems that every year I wait and wait for summer to finally arrive and in just the snap of a finger, it's over. Shorts, tee shirts & bathing suits are on clearance. Swea...

Mission and ministry comes in lots of different shapes and sizes. And now that it's August, we began talking about Fall & Winter at staff meeting this morning. I can't help but be excited about some of the opportunities we'll have as a church family this year. ...

In this high-tech world, we think of young people as being both tech-savvy and obsessed with their devices, PS 4's, X Boxes & other game systems. Which is true - up to a point. In preparation for VBS week when I would have 3 ...

Do you have an idea for a new mission project that's been eating at your heart? Something you know God is calling you to do and yet you aren't quite sure how to go about it? Something that you wonder what possible kind of a difference you, as an individual, could make? A...
